Since I found Ruby Rowe last year, her work has continued to amaze and surprise me around every turn. In the first half of the Crashing Tides Duet, we get such a powerful story. It will break you, destroy you, and put you back together again in the most profound way.

In just this first half of Sailor, Elliott and Jake’s story, we learn so much about connections from the past, heartbreak that is incomprehensible, and the strength in these three characters have and how they learn to survive events

Watch out… Anchored will bind itself to your heart and secure its place in your memory for a long time to come. Ruby Rowe’s vivid characters grab the reader’s interest from the beginning and never let go. The suspense keeps coming, with twists and turns throughout the novel-- I honestly did not know how this one was going to wrap up until the absolute end! And the sex scenes … off-the-charts hot!!!

The characters of Elliott, Sailor and Jake are enough to get the reader completely hooked on “Ancho

I was blindsided by my desire to devour this book. A friend recommended it and well, I can't turn down an adventure. The blurb sounded so enticing. But the actually story was far more interesting in a train wreck sort of way...It was a great read. It's probably the most awkward yet real story of its kind.

I don't want to give too much away so I will shut my trap. But first, the complex relationships and personalities make this book pull you in. Being distracted by the feelings and carried away by

Wow!!!!! This was emotional, heartbreaking, beautiful, sad, angsty and sooooo freaking hot!! I never expected some of these steamy scenes with a book that started out so sad and depressing.

I can’t choose between Jake, Sailor and Elliott and I’m glad everything worked out. These three had a unique relationship and connection that changed their future and also haunted their past. I can’t get into details because it will mess up the dynamics of enjoying this book which I read in one sitting bec

Ruby Rowe you are absolutely amazing and so is Anchored. It's an amazing, heart wrenching, and heartwarming story. I absolutely love the connection that Sailor, Elliott and Jake have. I would never be able to choose between Elliott and Jake they each bring their own feelings and complications to the mix. Sailor is an amazing, strong and beautiful girl who deserves the world. Elliott is an beautiful soul that deserves all the love in the world. Jake is an strong, funny and loving person who deser ...more

She meets Jake by chance through his niece, who is a student of Sailors. The attraction is undeniable between them.

I absolutely loved this book. Ruby Rowe really knows how to write a story that pulls you in from the very beginning. This is a very well written story. Sailor, Elliott and Jake's story is centered around the past and present. About tragedy, regret, jealousy, secrets, and love. Sailor and Elliott have known each other for a long time. Tragedy and secrets from the past has kept them apart for ten years. Sailor is now a teacher and Jake is the uncle of one of her students. Sailor discovers Elliott ...more

This review is being left voluntarily and any and all thoughts are my honest opinions on this book and the authors work. What a beautifully heart wrenching first book in this duet that is an emotional rollercoaster. I felt such a wide range of emotions while reading Elliot, Jake and Sailors love triangle.

Wow! What an amazing story!

I can always count on Ruby Rowe for a heart-pounding, blow-me-away story. Anchored is, by far, one of her best, and I am on pins and needles, wondering how it's all going to play out. Elliot, Sailor, Jake--oh my. These characters are some of the best you'll ever read.

Ruby is known for her unexpected plot twists and for romantic scenes that literally sizzle on the pages. I'm talking, this author can write a sex scene like no one else. But there is so much more to this s

This love triangle was so intense at times... I enjoyed the characters especially the different personalities and how Sailor found happiness in both Jake and Elliot. I was so intrigued with the story, at the end I sat back and realized holy shit! she fell for the same two guys her sister did... I wish the relationship with her bestie Carrie was explored more especially since she was her only true friend and only person who knew what Sailor had been through the past years..

I’m not crying, you are! Admittedly I struggled to get into this a little at first. I don’t like seeing scenes with other intimate partners (even if it’s before primary characters get together) I also don’t like love triangles but this book blossomed and transformed into so much more. Understanding the characters past made me understand them as they are at present and that made a huge difference. Once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down. My heart plummeted and then it soared.

This was my first book by Ruby Rowe and I loved it. So many devastating secrets Sailor has had to live with. Then by chance she meets Jake. Now she finally has a chance at happiness and moving forward until her past comes back right through the front door. Elliot is the past she thought she would never see again. Now what to do. So many twists in this love triangle. This story is amazing. Diving straight into the next book!

Anchors keep their ships from drifting away.

I adored this book. It's a great reminder that no matter what the past may be, no matter what current issues there may be, there is a chance to overcome. This one definitely caused me to get teary eyed a time or two. It's a great read, and I highly recommend it.

Amazing...simply amazing. The emotion within this book is off the charts. I cried so hard, I did also laugh a lot as well. The steamy sex scenes are great, and I feel it’s just started really. I’m so looking forward to the second book in this series. Very well written yet again by Ruby.

Ruby Rowe began writing in January of 2013 under the pen name Scarlet Wolfe, releasing contemporary and young adult. She soon tried her hand at writing erotica romance and fell in love with the genre.
The pen name Ruby Rowe came about when she decided it best to keep her racier books separate from her young adult romances.
When not writing, Ruby reads naughty books about possessive, hot alpha males
